Arrow and Zavvi are bringing us this exclusive new 4K Collectors Edition of An American Werewolf in London, complete with Hand Transformation Statuette, and limited to just 1000 copies. This won’t be a steelbook, but will have disc housed in rigid slipcase (with the art on that still subject to confirmation – expect it to be different to what’s show below).

If you’re not looking for the statue, we’re told the standard 4K release will be following soon after, so keep a look out for more updates on that.

Pre-orders are live right now.

    I’ve looked at this pic for like five minutes and I still can’t figure out if I like it.

    The one thing I HAVE figured out is that this thing will come in “handy” on lonely nights…
